  1. Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard

    Hi Everyone, I am in major need of nay advice! My puppy Clifford is 15 months old. He had a double arthroscopy on his elbows 7 months ago due to severe elbow dysplasia. He recovered slowly and the surgeon said he was at the worse end of the spectrum recovery wise but he got there. Just the...

    Hi! My 8 month old golden, Cliff, is three weeks post surgery after a double arthroscopy for elbow dysplasia. He had fragmented coronoid processes, pieces of bone broken off and grinding on his joints. Before the surgery he was lame often, had an awful snapping noise each time he stood up and...
